If you’re the proud owner of an iPhone, you really are spoilt for choice when it comes to the huge range of accessories you can get for your device. Whether you want to perfect your pics, need quality headphones for your workouts, or simply want to make sure your smartphone is properly protected, you’ll find a gadget to suit.
Speaking of protecting your smartphone, have you got iPhone insurance? Whether you’ve just bought your iPhone or are planning to purchase one soon, taking out insurance is essential, as it’ll cover you if your phone is lost, stolen or damaged. It essentially gives you peace of mind that if something did happen to your phone, you won’t be left out of pocket.
Now, on to the accessories – starting off with the practical ones…
Practical iPhone accessories you can’t live without
Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ll have heard of PopSockets. These nifty little phone grips have gained popularity among phone owners across the globe. The premise is simple: stick it to the back of your phone, and ‘pop’ it open to grip the phone using one hand. It makes it easier to text and take pictures, plus the grip doubles up as a handy stand for catching up on your favourite series on the way into work.
Mous phone case
There’s no doubt about it: all iPhones need to be protected with a good quality case. Mous’ range of iPhone cases have heaps of style and substance; they’re made with high-impact AiroShock™ material, which dampens the impact if (or more like, when) you drop your phone.
Each case is crafted using authentic materials, like walnut and sea shell. Buy a Mous case and you could get a free screen protector thrown in, too. For all-round protection for your smartphone, don’t forget to take out iPhone insurance as well!
Anker wireless charger
If you’ve got a new iPhone XS, XS Max or XR, change the way you charge it with this slick wireless charging pad from Anker. It boosts the battery of iPhones 10% quicker than other 5W wireless chargers; simply place your device on the soft, cushioned pad, and it’ll do the rest! No more plugging in needed – it’ll even charge through thick cases.
Make your playlists sound even better
As well as top-notch sound quality, part of the appeal of Apple AirPods is that they work seamlessly with the iPhone (and all other Apple devices). They cleverly switch on when they sense they’re in your ear, and they deliver an industry-leading five hours of listening time and up to three hours of talk time. They even come in their own, handy charging case, which holds multiple charges for over 24 hours of listening time.
If you’re after great sound but are on a bit of a budget, Tech Advisor rates the Auckley Eclipse as one of the best, affordable Bluetooth speakers on the market. It’s simple to pair with your iPhone, plus it comes with a microphone so you can make hands-free calls. When it comes to the speaker, though, the sound is crisp, the bass powerful, and there’s no distortion on high volume – so, crank it up and enjoy!
Fine-tune your photography skills
Olloclip mobile photography box set
If you’re an iPhone X owner looking to ramp up your photography game, look no further than the mobile photography box set of Olloclip. This kit contains three, interchangeable premium lenses – super-wide, macro and fisheye – which deliver exceptional image quality. The lens system is designed to work with front and rear cameras and is great for videos, time-lapse, panoramas and 360° VR photos.
Joby phone tripod
Joby is known for developing expertly engineered tripods, with its GripTight ONE model ideal for your iPhone. Its rubber feet stabilise your phone, leading to clearer, crisper images and videos, while its flexible legs allow you to get experimental with placement – stand it on a rock, or wrap it around a tree branch for the ultimate shot! Its foldable design also makes it super easy to transport with you on every adventure.
Achieve your fitness goals
The Apple Watch is marketed as the ‘ultimate workout partner,’ and it’s easy to see why. The Series 4 can be paired with Apple’s Workout app, where you can set individual fitness goals, measure calorie burn and track progress over time. You can even pair your Watch with compatible gym equipment, so you can keep important metrics like heart rate and speed in line with what you’re exercising on – be it the treadmill or cross-trainer. It’s one clever bit of tech…
Spigen running armband
With its sweat-proof material, adjustable band and touch-compatible screen, Spigen’s running armband is a great choice for running with your phone. It’s compatible with the iPhone XR, XS, X, 8 Plus and 7 Plus, and you can choose from black, camo or neon, with the latter being a good choice if you run early in the morning or late at night. Its reflective strap will help you to be seen after dark, too.
